With COVID inadvertently creating a home improvement boom throughout late 2020 and 2021, is 2022 looking like taking a very different turn with homeowners likely to become more cost conscious than ever when it comes to their home improvement projects.
It is also vital that installers are able to navigate the minefield of preserving their own bottom line against rising business costs, while still remaining competitive in the market. Showcasing a high quality product range capable of adding value to properties in the increasingly aggressive housing market, while helping to lower energy bills, is a must going forward.
Price increases are also an inevitability and currently hitting our industry left, right and centre - something that was expected to slow down after coming out the other side of COVID. However, it seems that we are still looking towards uncertainty and instability in terms of material pricing.
There is no instability where SOL Conservatory Roofs are concerned, working consistently throughout the supply chain to offer installers the best prices on the full product range, ensuring that increases are only passed on when absolutely necessary.
“Significant investment has already been made throughout our window, door and roof factories this year” explains Lee Marson, Operations Director
“Upgrades to machinery, stock control, planning, batching and despatch systems, has allowed our production facility to be in a position to successfully ride the wave of supply and demand, we are currently sitting at about 50% capacity on roofs and frames, and have the ability to scale up significantly without any lapse in levels of quality, service or lead-times”
Partnering with installers, SOL offers a one-stop shop for solid and glazed roofs, lantern roofs, orangeries, windows and doors. For complete peace of mind, installers get a dedicated account manager, a single point of guarantee and direct to site delivery.
A full suite of retail brochures, bespoke flyers and showroom literature are just some of the marketing support available. Installation guides, videos and data sheets provide all the information needed, along with technical specifics – plus, SOL experts are always on hand to offer assistance which it comes to those tricky designs!
